April is School Library Month

School Library Month is celebrated annually in April to recognize the essential role of school library programs in transforming learning. This year's theme is School Libraries Transform Learning. A School Library is the heart of the school. Libraries open doors for dream, to explore, to learn. School libraries transform learning because Googling an answer isn't enough---
         Students need to learn how to locate, access and evaluate information as they develop essential information and digital literacy, research skills that are necessary for both college and career readiness---lifelong skills.
